Dynasty Warriors - Power of my Wit

PWNycar update:

I was at the Mobile Bay Mustang Club a little earlier tonight - a local group for folks who own hot rod ponycars. One of the club officers, who hadn't met me yet, sees a new face in the crowd and comes over to talk for a bit. "So," he says, "what brought you here tonight?"

I kind of look up at him for a second or two, not sure how else to answer. "...my Mustang," I then reply, telling him about my fandom and my means of transportation in the same breath.

Writer's Block: Love is timeless

What is your opinion of relationships where there is a significant age difference between partners?

For the most part, age is just a number and it really doesn't matter at all. Though I admit when a guy brags about how young his girl is, my first thought is "You go, boy" like it's some huge achievement. Meanwhile "cougars" just come off as kind of desperate and slutty. Double-standard? Perhaps, but still pretty much the commonly-held viewpoint on such things.

All my best ideas happen over shots.

Last night while watching some Monday Night Football at the bars, a friend and I came to a realization. Most sports teams, in this case football, have been around now for quite some time. And they all have traditional mascots like the Lions, Tigers, or Bears (oh my!)

While it's noble to pick such things like some kind of totem animal, a team wishing to emulate the swiftness of Eagles or the strength of Bears, it does seem a little outdated. Modern audiences are different creatures altogether.

Oakland has the right idea, I think. They've got the Raiders, which essentially are pirates. What we really need, whether it be teams like the Ravens or Texans who move or new expansion teams like Carolina or Jacksonville, is more modern mascots to represent these teams. I know I for one would be a lot more interested in watching a matchup between the aforementioned pirates and, say, the Nashville Ninjas. A Cardinal is hardly a fearsome symbol, so that franchise could become the Arizona Zombies. We actually already have Cowboys, so that's a huge plus. Detroit should drop the Lions...well, the entire team really because they suck. But assuming that team still counts for anything rebranding them the Detroit Robocops would certainly get people interested in them for a change.

I don't know. I can't help but think this would be a phenomenal idea. So long as nobody goes overboard with it; I could see the someone like the Pats taking the new name of the Chuck Norrises, which would hardly be fair to the rest of the teams. (Though I suppose it would explain why those guys always win...)

Technicolor Dreams

This is mostly for my own benefit, but I'm posting it here for future reference as well as for mere curiosity. I have no desire to type out the full text of this weekend's aura reading, nor do I feel like sharing the personal details of my own fortune. But I did want to record this info concerning my chakras somewhere, and where better than right here.

TL;DR: New-Agey stuff here. Some of which I still need to research a bit and possibly try to debunk. Feel free to skip if you're not interested. If you are, don't hold me to any of this just yet.

The Power of Three

Someone recently told me that deep down, I am a writer. And rather than neglecting this gift, I should nurture it...I need to write more, whether it be stories or posts in forums, journal entries or other updates. I won't go into more details about that reading, but it does seem like fitting advice.

Bad news comes in threes, or so they say. One recent example comes painfully to mind, as both a friend had recently mentioned it as well as another part being a situation I'm currently struggling with.

Three times, fate has threatened to smack me upside the head. Three times I narrowly avoided that fate. A wreck still happened, but happened to a friend rather than myself. I did see a camera go spiraling downward, though it remained unbroken and the people below uninjured. That laptop did fail, and though the originally missing files were quickly restored other issues have remained nagging since. All works out in the end and none of these were beyond my ability to handle, but the pacing of them was amusing enough to mention.
